Hi very blue
I do not even want to pretend to know what you are going through - suffice to say it is extreme inconvenient and the problem exacerbated by the lack of clarity on the condition. My wife has had similar symptoms and it was diagnosed as polycystic ovaries - has that been explored?
The ongoing nature of your condition seems to fulfil all the criteria for a chronic condition, however it is at the discretion of the scheme whether they accept and then pay for the medication that arises therefrom as a chronic condition. In order to achieve this you will need to write to the Principal Officer of the scheme and attach supporting medical information.
Some schemes have started to reintroduce unlimited acute medication and chronic medication from the risk pool, rather than from savings or severely restricted limits, as it seems you currently have. It may be worth exploring new alternatives.
Best of luck in your endeavours.
